New Mexico regulators have launched an online interactive map based on methane emissions from the oil and natural gas industry.
The methane map will help the Environment Department track progress toward meeting the goals of Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s executive order addressing climate change and energy waste prevention, the agency said in the release, issued earlier this week.
The governor’s executive order calls for the development of statewide regulations to ensure methane reductions from the oil and natural gas industry.
